3 Days Tour To Zurich and aroundHi :)
I am planning a 3 day tour to Zurich and Mount Titlis. What all places I can visit in and around Zurich and what the best way to get there.Also, is it possible to visit some other places apart from the above mentioned, in such a short duration of time.

Zurich is a great city and has a lot to offer. Make sure you spend some time strolling the old town; there are boutiques, bars, cinemas and antiquarian bookshops in the buildings that date back 2,000 years. In 'Niederdorf' (east bank of the River Limmat) you find shops and a multicultural nightlife area. Zurich also is home of some interesting museums: In the Kunsthaus Zurich (Art Museum) finest art is presented, and the Swiss National Museum has a permanent exhibition showing a comprehensive view of Swiss history (the historic museum building alone is worth a visit!). A nice way to explore the city is to go on a boat trip either on the Limmat River or the lake.
The trip to Mount Titlis can be combined with a visit of Lucerne. When taking public transport to go to Mount Titlis, you will change trains in Lucerne anyway. So I recommend you to stay in Lucerne on your way back from Mt. Titlis. Lucerne is, in a way, the essence of Switzerland: picturesque lakeside setting, historic Old Town and impressing mountains nearby. As everything is within walking distance you can just take off from the train station, cross the 14th century Chapel Bridge (most photographed monument in Switzerland) and you are in the middle of the city's Old Town. There you find historic buildings and fountains but also nice restaurants and bars. From Lucerne it is only a 50 minutes train ride back to Zurich, so you can have dinner in Lucerne before heading back (last direct train to Zurich: 11.35pm).
For your third day I recommend you to go to Schaffhausen (with the Rhine Fall), Bern (capital city) or Basel ('city of culture'). The mentioned cities are all only 1 hour train ride from Zurich. More information on all the places of interest can be found online at www.MySwitzerland.com
Have a great time in Switzerland!
